Recently, a 36-year-old groomsman shared an incident that happened at his long time friend Sara’s wedding. “I’m on medication for anxiety and depression that has to be taken at a certain time of the day and also requires food, so I asked Sara what time the food would be served,” the author, who goes by the handle u/pizzaweddingthrow, shared some background information in the post on the AITA subreddit.
Turns out, this was a vegetarian wedding, which the author assured was no problem to him at all. “The only issue I had was when I found out the size of the meals,” he said and added that “The entire course consisted of a side salad, a side of corn, and a side of broccoli…” As you may suspect, this was far from enough for a groomsman of 6’2″, 185 lbs.
So he came up with a plan to “covertly” order some pizza, sneak out from the reception and grab a few slices… What he didn’t know was that he was far from the only guest at the wedding with a grumbling stomach.

To find out an expert’s take on this whole incident, Bored Panda spoke with Aurelie Della Maggiore, the wedding planner and wedding designer based in the French Alps from Lucy Till French Weddings. Aurelie said that from her experience, she has never heard about guests being unsatisfied with the wedding dinner portions, and added “it’s also the caterer’s responsibility to recommend the right amount of food per guest.”
“Here the issue is really more about feeding your bridal party during the day prior to the wedding dinner,” she said and added that “Sometimes brides and grooms are focused on the wedding itself and forget about the rest of the day that could be long prior to the wedding.”
Aurelie believes that “it would have been good to think about feeding the bridal party and at least make sure to have snacks available to avoid that situation.”
“We usually take care of the bridal party from the day before the wedding and no one gets hungry. That’s why it’s always good to hire a wedding planner,” the professional wedding planner concluded.
